Notre Dame's first physics Ph.D. was awarded in 1942 to a student in nuclear physics. Since that time, more than 400 Ph.D.s have graduated from the department, making an impact by their presence as faculty and researchers at colleges, universities, national and industrial laboratories, and in leadership positions within national corporations.
